Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, to be released in early 2021

Back in August 2020 we informed you about a possible release date for Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster. However, it appears that this won’t happen after all. According to VentureBeat, Electronic Arts now plans to release Mass Effect Trilogy in early 2021.

According to VentureBeat, the primary factor holding up development is the original Mass Effect game. From the looks of it, the first game does not live up to the quality of the rest of the package. Thus, BioWare is looking into improving both of the game’s graphics and gameplay mechanics.

Furthermore, VentureBeat reports that this package won’t feature the multiplayer mode from Mass Effect 3. In other words, this will be a strictly single-player gaming experience.

This Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster may be called Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. Although we don’t really know much about it, we expect it to feature the base games alongside their DLCs, as well as higher resolution textures, and some QoL improvements.

Now I know that this news may disappoint some of our Mass Effect fans. However, and as we’ve already reported, you can already experience remastered versions of the first three Mass Effect games via these mods. So, until EA releases this official trilogy remaster, we suggest downloading these mods and playing the original versions.

Stay tuned for more!
